Taylor Allen Force was born in Houston, Texas then moved to the mountains of New Mexico. He loved skiing and was a third-generation Eagle Scout. He attended the New Mexico Military Institute and became president of the National Honor Society. He then joined the United States Military Academy at West Point, following in his grandfather’s footsteps, a 1947 West Point graduate and Korean War veteran. Taylor became a Field Artillery Officer and was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan on separate combat tours to heroically serve his nation and fight for freedom. After the Army he began his Masters Program at Vanderbilt University. He was on a school-sponsored trip to Israel to learn about and work with Israeli entrepreneurs and startup companies when he was brutally murdered by an Islamic terrorist in Tel Aviv. Not far from where he was murdered, in Tel Aviv, land has been slated to become "The Taylor Force Orchard". Terrorists want to take away life, our answer is to bring NEW life! Taylor was good at life, and helped others succeed as well. He was inclusive and created friendships with everyone he came into contact with. He was the person that said, “let’s go”, not the person that asked to come along. Taylor's family recently traveled overseas. Recognizing that many people feel their pain and want to do something meaningful in Taylor's memory, they kindly ask everyone to plant fruit trees in the Holy Land. Join the thousands of others to remember Taylor an American Hero! Together we will plant a beautiful tribute to Taylor and create NEW life!
